Marks and Spencer African Shea Nut Lip Butter

The Good about Marks and Spencer Shea Lip Butter:

  • It keeps my lips soft and moisturised. Consistent use does improve the appearance of lips and evens out the skin.
  • The consistency is not too thick and this what I really like about the Shea lip butter. It applies smoothly on my lips without tugging. Its almost as if it adjusts to my body/lip temperature and sort of melts into my lips.
  • It can be easily layered over all lipsticks as a top coat. No matter how much of this you have swiped on your lips, you would never run the danger of imparting too much shine to your lips. Vaseline, for instance, makes my lips a wee bit too shiny ☹
  • Unlike some lip butters, this feels extremely weightless on my lips so much so that I forget if I have applied anyting at all !
  • Slightly sweet and somewhat waxy in taste but neither too unpleasant
  • Absolutely divine fragrance. I like its cocoa-chocolate-shea smell even better than the Cocoa and Shea products manufactured by The Body Shop. This coming from a Body Shop loyalist should sure enough make headlines 🙂

The Bad about Marks and Spencer Shea Lip Butter:

  • Availability is limited to only select Marks and Spencer outlets.
  • Being a potted product it does come with its own set of complications like dirty fingers, microbes etc.
  • I purchased it in the winters but I do feel that it may turn gooey and melt a bit if left exposed outside the refrigerator in the summers. Both storage and usage, therefore, might pose a problem depending upon the prevalent weather condition.

Verdict: A good buy for dry and chapped lips.
Rating: :-* :-* :-* + 0.5
Would you purchase again? : Yes

        1. nahi nids…i will be sending lal remaining couriers tomorrow.dont worry, all parcels are packed…i am just not at homes these days morn to evening so unable to send :((

            1. i am so sorry :(( but i just have been out all the time and the courier gets dipatched at seven pm ….m never able 🙁 to make it back home by then

  2. This sounds delicious! 10 gm is a lot of product at Rs 245! I’ve only tried Lotus chocolate flavored lip balm and I loved the smell..this must be 10 times more divine 😛

    1. its gorgeous ankita….u must try it :yahoo: btw i saw fuchia class and fuchia ardent today. interestingly both seemed nothing before the color riche fuchia so i did not buy any…will show u my pics of the loreal fuchia soon :yahoo:

  3. I got this last year – couple of these were kept on their counter(on purpose so i could not resist :-p )
    I’m a big fan of M&S so just picked it up (their cocoa butter and vanilla cream is just superb )
    it smells awesome & great when you apply it but somehow it leaves my lips more dry after sometime – its vaseline based and vaseline never suited me.. did not find it very moisturising and the poor balm just lying there alone in my office cabinet

  4. i am a lip balm addict n i absolutly love this lip balm.. form the feel of my lips , to the smell and even the taste of it.. love it. can u suggest any other great lip balms..
